My Story – Part II

At 277 lbs., I made a well-intentioned attempt at doing better. I joined a gym and started eating less. Not well mind you, but less of the food. I did pretty well in the first 3-4 months and I got my weight down to 235. Yay me! But then I got lazy again. The weight slowly came back and I got back up to about 260. I was kind of a hermit and taken a leave at work to kind of get my head straight.  I came back to my job 6 months later less stressed as I had stepped out of a management roll. Going back to individual contributor was a weight of my shoulders…unfortunately that was the only weight I lost.

In 2008 I was getting in contact with old friends via Facebook and ended up running into an old friend of mine Nicole. I had known her in my late teens/early twenties as she was dating my best friend and I was dating her best friend at the time.  We kept planning to meet up as we were both still in the SF Bay Area. She was finishing up her master’s degree at the time and I was quite frankly a little embarrassed at the behemoth I had become so I was a little hesitant. Finally I decided to go for it and we went out. Thank goodness the stars aligned for me that day and I had unknowingly just gone out on a first date with my now wife.
